The Landmark Award winner in the medical category is the University of Texas Medical Branch League City campus expansion. UTMB's initial League City hospital opened in 2016, and its inpatient services and other service lines quickly reached capacity. The expansion gives the League City campus a total of 97 beds and was designed to support the growing mainland population over the next decade. The new five-story patient tower features several new departments and amenities, adding 60 new patient beds, lab spaces, new food service and dining, and an adjacent helipad. The tower also can support future vertical expansion of up to 12 floors and 360 beds. The first phase of the expansion also included a new parking garage and a pedestrian bridge.
